Now that the neighborhood wallaby has infiltrated your kitchen, you'll need a new place to enjoy tasty meals and live dancing. For $55, today's Groupon gets you a two-course meal, two hours of open bar with beer and wine, and a belly-dancing performance and lesson at Hakan Turkish Grill (a $125 value). Your Groupon is redeemable for any Friday- or Saturday-night dining, drinking, and dancing experience at the South Beach grill, though reservations are required.
As a crossroads between Europe and the Middle East, Turkish cuisine blends the world's finest flavors in a culinary delight as revolutionary and enjoyable as Ginsberg's Howl. Your evening of wonders begins at 9 p.m. and includes two hours of access to the open bar's beer and wine selection to empower your hips and shoulders to engage in the ancient art of belly dance. In addition to performances by professional belly dancers, you can take part in a group belly-dancing lesson to help enable your stomach to properly digest a meal of authentic and all-natural Turkish delights. Begin your meal with a choice between creamy hummus and tangy tabouli before graduating to the main course. Your options include kofte, ground-sirloin patties grilled and served with fries; generous chunks of sautéed-garlic chicken with veggies and rice; or a vegetarian delight of sautéed seasonal vegetables with rice. The chefs at Hakan use all-natural ingredients to create the original and tasty fare.
Though most entertainment these days is derived from personal karaoke machines and grape-eating contests, blending the performing arts with a hearty and enjoyable meal makes for a night filled with merriment. Impress your next date with your ability to consolidate dinner and dancing into one flavorful package of hip shimmies, beer and wine, and succulent Turkish fare.
